Moscow. The festive season in a Urals town in Russian ended in tragedy this year after a man killed his live-in girlfriend after she failed to clear away their artificial New Year’s tree, RIA Novosti reported.

The verbal argument about the decoration escalated until the 43-year old repeatedly stabbed the girlfriend, 38, the Investigative Committee in the Republic of Udmurtia said Thursday.

The man turned himself in and is now facing up to 15 years in jail on murder charges, the committee said in a statement.
